PRODUCER NOTES:
 Château Rieussec has been a leading wine in Sauternes for several generations. Ranked as a Premier Grand Cru in 1855, it is made with a subtle blend of Sémillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle.
TASTING NOTES (AT BOTTLING)
The nose offers a lot of freshness with citrus notes dominated by grapefruit. In the mouth, the wine maintains a very fresh style. Its moderate richness in sugar (compared to 1999, 2000 and 2001) makes this a lighter vintage full of finesse and elegance. The combination of the dried grapes from the first selective harvest and the botrytis at the end of the harvests gave the result we had hoped for. This was to characterise this very fine vintage.

Baron Eric de Rothschild : "The wines of Sauternes are so wonderful that we wanted to have our own, and Rieussec’s vineyard is outstanding”
